So I imagine you've guessed why I'm not going to Japan anytime soon, right? Is it the picture (that I "borrowed" from Flickr) of the banner of Anime Expo that gave it away?
Yes, I'm heading down to Los Angeles for Anime Expo 2010. It costs about 1/3 of what I would spend to travel to Japan (maybe less depending on how crazy I spend my money in Japan). Months ago, AX wasn't even in the plans, not even considered in my radar since I didn't think I could scrape enough money due to my shortened hours at work. Things change... I got a new position and now I'm actually working overtime! Still not considering AX yet... But then...
Again, I apologize Japan, that I'm not going to your country because there will be lots of guests that I won't see there that I'll see at AX. At least not in the same place, right? ^^; (Unless of course there are some big event that I go to in Japan). Anyway...
she has a Twitter account (thanks to Seizya for that head's up). She's one of my favourite previous anime generation voice actress. She had the lead role for some of the anime she was in and she's got that cool voice. Sakaki was my favourite character (tied with Osaka) from Azumanga Daioh, but I don't think I have a Sakaki-related item to sign... I wonder what I should get signed by her... a Rider figure or Nendoroid Luka? What do you think? I'm leaning towards Luka.
NIS America who are releasing the Toradora anime here. I'm hoping to get a copy of the first volume from AX. If I can't then I'll get Yui to sign a Tohru Honda related item and get Eri to sign either a Queen's Blade Alleyne figure or Tatiana Wisla (from Last Exile) art ^_^
All pictures, except the first one, are from the official Anime Expo site.
It's gonna be one crazy four days! And really one of the main reasons I'm going is to meet the person who sent me the omiyage ^_^ So hopefully I won't be going around the con by myself ^^;;;
See you there if you're going!
